My significant other and I spent 2 nights at La Casa Amarilla in the middle of September. This B&B is located within easy walking distance of the bus lines, as well as there are taxis everywhere in the area. The house itself is wonderfully decorated, with each room being so amazingly individual. We had the purple bedroom. But the best part of the our whole stay there, however, was the hostess, Jenny. She was so helpful in providing us with suggestions of things to do and places to see on what turned out to be a too short of stay in Quito. Jenny also provided us with suggestions of places to stay and things to do in other parts of the country to which we would be traveling, as well as helping us with our Spanish. We had a great place to sleep, wonderful conversation, a little worry on her part when we didn't come back to the house until late one night, a really good but simple breakfast, and essentially a personal travel guide. You simply can't go wrong by staying with Jenny at La Casa Amarilla; you won't be disappointed.
